Neo Jacobitism: Looking Beyond the Fringe

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This analysis of neo Jacobitsm at the end of the nineteenth century is focused on its organisational and intellectual contribution to the democratic movement for Scottish Home Rule. With attention given to the concept of legitimism, Morton examines how the Jacobite cause retained loyalty to Victoria as Queen and highlight the campaigning and publishing work of Theodore Napier. He demonstrates that neo-Jacobitism never captured widespread political support, yet the legitimist principle offered a significant challenge to the Anglo-Scottish Union.
